Neil and Julieanne Snare grow and make only pinot noir and riesling from their Bagdad vineyard in central/southern Tasmania. The location in the southern Midlands is as unique as the styles of wines for which they’ve become well known. Some of the vine material is 27 years old; it is this that helps to make balanced and stable wines. Neil Snare uses indigenous yeasts and it is obvious from the fine quality of recent releases that he has some particularly fine strains in the Winstead ether.
Lot 16 is a similar clonal mix to the slightly fuller-bodied brother Lot 7 but the Lot 16 block has a more southerly aspect, allowing the late afternoon breezes to cool down the vines. Summer sun and heat can be quite intense in this part of the island.
